so then, big decision time.
i am 22 and have served an apprenticeship as a mechanical project engineer, including a further 2 years experience. i do not really enjoy my job (although the money is good) and have been considering travelling for a year now. i've been doing research on here for the past week or so and reckon i wanna do it and now is the time. my friend is wanting to go aswell and i also have a friend in sydney at the moment doing the same thing althoguh she is in a more permanent job and not travelling around. so far i haven't saved any money but reckon by about may i could have about 3k or thereabouts after booking flights. the only thing at the back of mind is what happens afterwards? what happens when i get back and have absolutely nothing, i think if i was to give my job up i'd want to be giving it up for something a bit more long term than a year.
also one more thing, i have yet to apply for my working visa. i am in full health, qualified etc but there is one problem. last week i had the unfortunate incident of being caught by the police when reversing my car out the driveway to let another family member out whom i had blocked in, i wasn't intending on driving again and i'm very disappointed and embarrassed. this is another reason for finally taking the plunge and leaving (hoping it will be a blessing in disguise). the question is do i apply for a visa saying charged with drink driving appending court case or wait until next week when i can simply put banned from driving, as the pending court case could lead to a jail sentence in other cases although i know mines will be a ban and fine.
thanks for listening and your thoughts would be appreciated!
